Title: Continuum Robots as Steerable Needles: Shape Sensing and Control

In this talk, I will briefly discuss our recent work on Shape Sensing and Control of continuum robots with application in surgical interventions, specifically in needle-based lung sampling and minimally invasive bone fusion. This talk focuses on: (1) How to estimate the shape of a flexible robot using single-point measurements, (2) Data-driven steering of the robot in an unknown environment.
